The Naskh script is one of the six major calligraphy scripts of Arabic origin. It was first used in Hejaz as the written communication of personal and official correspondences. It took its name ("transcription") from its use in making copies of books and and musaHif (copies of the Koran). It is beloved for its beauty, clarity, and smooth and speedy writing style, and thus has become the most widely used script in modern times, most often seen in books and education materials. This book will examine the rules and standards of writing Naskh. It will examine pen angles, shapes, spacing, letter formation, letter proportions, line rules, counter, letter groups, ligatures, letter similarities, ductus, and much more.
